This eBook edition of "MY LAST DUCHESS" has been formatted to the highest digital standards and adjusted for readability on all devices. My Last Duchess is a poem, frequently anthologised as an example of the dramatic monologue. It first appeared in 1842 in Browning's Dramatic Lyrics. The poem is written in 28 rhymed couplets of iambic pentameter. The poem is set during the late Italian Renaissance. The speaker (presumably the Duke of Ferrara) is giving the emissary of the family of his prospective new wife (presumably a third or fourth since Browning could have easily written 'second' but did not do so) a tour of the artworks in his home. He draws a curtain to reveal a painting of a woman, explaining that it is a portrait of his late wife; he invites his guest to sit and look at the painting. Robert Browning (1812 - 1889) was an English poet and playwright whose mastery of dramatic verse, and in particular the dramatic monologue, made him one of the foremost Victorian poets. His poems are known for their irony, characterization, dark humor, social commentary, historical settings, and challenging vocabulary and syntax. The speakers in his poems are often musicians or painters whose work functions as a metaphor for poetry.

Born in 1869, Edwin Arlington Robinson spent his early childhood and youth in Gardiner, Maine, which became the 'Tilbury Town' of his poems. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for poetry in 1922, 1925 and 1928, Robinson excelled in the dramatic lyric, often blending wry humor and implicit tragedy in graphic poems distinguished by precise diction and skillfully rhymed stanzas. Frequently regarded as pessimistic, his austere works tended to focus on human failures. In addition to the famous title pieces, this volume contains such poems as 'Richard Cory', 'On the night of a Friend's Wedding' and 'The Dead Village', from 'Children of the Night'; 'The Return of Morgan and Fingal' and 'As a world would have it' from 'Captain Craig'; 'The White Lights', 'Alma Mater' and 'How Annandale Went Out' from 'The Town Down the River'; 'Flammonde' 'Eros Turannos' and 'Another Dark Lady' from 'The Man Against the Sky'; and many more.

Gender Expectations and Power Constellations in Robert Browning s My Last Duchess

Essay from the year 2006 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Linguistics, grade: 1,0, University of Freiburg (Englisches Seminar), course: Proseminar, language: English, abstract: The situation does not seem to be particularly exciting at all: A wealthy and civilised Renaissance duke chatting harmlessly with the envoy of a count whose daughter he is planning to marry. Before the two men start to discuss the financial details of the marriage, the duke tries to show his best side and presents himself as an art-loving and generous nobleman. But the story takes a chilling turn: While the host and his guest look at the portrait of the last duchess, the duke makes some remarks that suggest he may have murdered his wife. On the surface, "My Last Duchess" seems to be a startling and entertaining mystery story, but considering the society and the environment that shaped the author, one cannot shake off the feeling that this poem is more than a story about a long-deceased Renaissance nobleman and his recalcitrant and disobedient wife. The poem touches some issues that were prevailing in the Victorian era and were of high interest to Browning's contemporaries: morality, gender expectations and power relations.

Intertextuality in Margaret Atwood s My Last Duchess and The Age of Lead

Seminar paper from the year 2015 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 1,7, University of Constance, language: English, abstract: This term paper introduces the reader to the world of Margaret Atwood, an internationally well-known Canadian author. She often uses myths and prominent works as a base for her own writings and concentrates on rewriting traditional or popular versions of stories, of which many undermine objectification or even refuse women (Wisker 2012: 67). It is striking how many times Atwood has used several texts within texts or intertexts throughout her career and thus it is worth having a closer look at it (Wilson 1993: 3). In order to show how well Atwood is able to use intertextuality, the following chapter begins with Robert Browning’s dramatic monologue respectively poem ‘My Last Duchess’, which is essential for a better understanding of the intertextuality used in Atwood’s ‘My Last Duchess’ and important to finally understand the Duke’s and the Duchess’ role in both writings. The next chapter has a closer look at Atwood’s short story, published in a collection of connected short stories by her called ‘Moral Disorder’ in 2006, which “grapples with the complicated ethics of obligation, particularly the conflict between selfishness and sacrifice that can arise within the praxis of care” (DeFalco 2011: 236). But many of the stories in the collection like ‘My Last Duchess’ also focus on the socialization of gender, a very central subject to Atwood, particularly the short stories set in the 1950s and 1960s, a time when gender was a principally discussed social issue (Wisker 2012: 165). In addition, as we will see in the short story ‘My Last Duchess’, Atwood regularly reverses the hero’s gender in order to alter the role of women from objects to subjects and she also doubles roles in order to make the same person look like a rescuer and a person being rescued (Wilson 1993: 32).
